Simon...no I did not check the fuses because everything else seemed to be working fine. That is interesting and I will definitely do so.

RE: New shoes

That's what she came with on the 18" fans. I know most of the folks here seem to have had Pirreli's stock.

Forgot to add the tires are 255/45ZR-18 vs. the stock 235/50s.

RE: Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 XL

Thanks FrostByte. I'm planning to put snow tires on the stock fans for winter driving which should prolong the life of the Goodyears for a few summers.

RE: Performance mods that don't negatively affect daily driving

I added 4.10s a while back and only lost about 1 mpg on average. You get into 5th around 60 - 65 instead of 75 - 80 so highway mileage isn't really affected.

Getting onto the highway now sure...

Sounds like the fuel pump issue. Mine did the same thing. Had it replaced under warranty. Problem solved.
